Well, I am not 100 % convinced this is Tachina. It sure looks like one, but the legs are all black, which is very exceptional in Tachina...

Hello, I'm having a problem posting new threads, as the "No new Threads allowed..." is showing up on all of the forums. Is there some sort of thread limit I've exceeded?

SabineH: you have to be logged in to see "New Thread" in the right upper corner of each "forum" site. In the case of accidental logout you have to start over.
